Miranda joined the Penn Memory Center in July of 2023 as a clinical research coordinator for the ABC study. She received her bachelor’s in science in neuroscience from Temple University. Prior to joining the PMC, Miranda worked as an intramural research trainee at the National Institute on Drug Abuse, NIH where she utilized in vivo calcium imaging in the nucleus accumbens in rats to understand how dopamine receptors modulate addiction-related behaviors. She has also worked as a research assistant in a neurochemistry and cognition laboratory where she studied neurocognitive aging in rodents. Miranda is excited to pursue clinical research with the PMC!
